Does anyone have this? Does it go away?

If you have a LLMD, be sure to mention it as this kind of vasculitis could be lyme related.

The herb, Gotu Kola might help with the micro-circulation aspect.

Lace like netting , the rhuemy said it was a small vessel vasculitis. It goes away for a bit when i am warm enough or get bvt or eat lots of lumbrokinase

. I am going to try iv curcumin soon in hopes to calm cytokine storm...my ' theory' is that either bb, when exposed to abx ran for cover shedding their outer surface protiens

on vessel wall and immune system is like ok "enemy"or bart /cpn has infected the endothelial lining ....i am using chinese herbs dan shen ,da zau and horse chestnut for blood flow tonifing.
Any other ideas ?

Hey mom in TX,

[hi]

Look at the first three leg pictures here.

https://picasaweb.google.com/103527803697265103794/LymeTBDRashes

The research I've done over the years links it to the ACA Lyme condition.

Here is a post by Melanie with a lot of ACA Lyme info and mentions of livedo too.

As far as going away, like Blue said, when she warms up. Also stress is known to exacerbate the condition.

Some people have it on their face, breasts, stomach and butts. But most I've seen seem to have it on the legs.

Here is a site with a few pics and some treatment info for Blue.

Keebler - thank you! I had never heard of Gotu Kola before. I see it comes in oil and cream form as well?

I wonder if using it topically would help?

Bluelyme - mine seems to show up when I'm hot. Especially right after a shower.

Tincup - thank you for that very interesting thread! I have it in several places. Hands, feet, stomach (it's worst on my stomach) and sometimes I have seen it on my thighs.

I noticed last night my son has it on his upper arms.

I had this symptom (very prominently) and also had signs of ACA (I had Garinii, a European strain of Lyme, which has a higher incidence of ACA).

Thankfully, it all disappeared over time with mHBOT...

bluelyme...

Yes...one of the least expensive ways to do mHBOT is for a small group (3-4 people) who live in close proximity to collectively rent and share a chamber.

In this scenario, the cost to each person could potentially be around $5.00 per daily dive...

You can compare this to mHBOT/HBOT treatments in a clinical setting, which can run from $50 to $350 per dive (or more), depending on the clinic/location.

There are different options to explore...

Lymeboy hasn't started mHBOT just yet...he will likely receive his chamber next week...
